According to thc last Italian census tli-ro are

Tlic Census of France.
The census of France for 18G6 has been publish?
ed. The population during tho past five years has
bad no sensible increase. Tho larger cities, and
manufacturing centro3 have become crowded; and
tho rural districts proportionally depopulated.
Faiis now has 1,800,000 inhabitants. While France
has thus been stationary, it has been otherwise in
all tho surrounding countries; bpain evs.n re?
porting a large inercaso of population, and the
public men of Franco aro becoming disquieted at
tho probable effects of this contrast, oo unfavora?
ble to their country; and aro beginunig to ex?
amine into tho social evils, which aro considered
tho main cause of this retroerrcssiou.
The Courrier des ElatsUnis suggests that defec?
tive female education is one of tho prime causes
of this lamentable slate of things. "Not that we
wish to say anything to the discredit of our
charming compatriots. Do what they moy, thoy
will always be the most fascinating of theil- sex;
and if their education is imperfect, if more regard
is had to make them elegantes than solides mothers
of families,-if thoy aro not brought up very strict?
ly,-if the examples set before them are not al?
ways tho most salutary,-if theil* inclinations tum
more readily to pleasure than to duty,-the fault is
their fathers', who have deviated from the good
old paths of a more strict family government."
Marriage is extremely unpopular, on account of
its "onormous expense." The peasant inri tates
the groat folk of the cities. If he has but a few
roods or acres, ho docs not wish to seo it sub?
divided amnug his children, tho whole being bare?
ly sufficient to maintain a small family.
One of the causes doubtless is the baneful
effect of centralization. Paris increases, and the
provincial towns and cities decrease. Tlie head
thus grows out of all proportion to tho languish?
ing members and extremities.
Many of the publicists consider the gigantic an?
nual conscription as one of the leading causes of
depopulation. But the Courrier des Etals Unis is
too staunch Bonapartist to seo the force of this
?-Emigration also, it appears, within the laBt few
years has assumed proportions heretofore un?
known, and these^omigrants go to other than
French colonies. "Algiers ?B under military rule,
tho emigrant will only go to a free country.
The article closes with the following extract
from M. DE TOCQUEVILLE : "Franco is the [most
surprising of nations. At tho vory moment whon
she is considered at her lowest, she rises, as it
were, by a thunderclap; when sho is thought
annihilated, she asserts herself with more pride
than before ; when incurable evils are discovered in
her body, social or politic, she roappears more
healthy and more vigorous than ever, an unheard
of pliability of genius, to which she owes both her
misories and her glory." Frenchmen take comfort
from this compendium of tho (moral) natural his?
tory of France; willing to boliave (the wish is
father to tho thought) that M. DE TOCQUEVILLE
knew whereof he affirmed.
BI. do Lamaitme.
La Liberte, of a few weeks ago, remarks that
M. DE LAM AMINE had just arrived in Paris.
His return carno very near hoing tho oc?
casion of a serious loss to him. During thc past
three weeks the subscribers to his " Cours de Lit?
t?rature," i\nd to his "Memoires," had addressed
several thousand letters to him, enclosing money
orders of from twonty to forty francs each. These
letters were all lying in little baskets ci a table in
his library. Ho had given orders that they should
be kopt, till on hfs arrival at Paris he could open
them himsolf, his man of business being sick at
tho timo. Unfortunately the Baid library took firo,
and a considerable nunibor of this "collection" was
consumed before tho dovouring element was
brought under control; and this, notwithstanding
the courageous devotion of DUEANCQ, his garcon
de bureau, who bad his hands burned by tho flames.
The loss ia great, but M. DE LAMAMTNE hopes to
bo able to make it up iu part at least-if his com?
plaisant subscribers will again como to his assist?
This is decidedly the coolest littlo fire wo have
ever seen, heard, or read of. 80 far from hoing a
loss, wo have strong suspicions it was a sort of
deus ex- machina manufactured for that spocial
purpose and occasion. HAHEY SKTMPOLE should
hide his diminished head; M. ALPHONSE has com?
pletely eclipsed him. LAMARTINE has elevated
begging to the dignity of a liberal profession
not to say to one of the Fine Arts. And what a
sublime indifference to money 1 60,000 francs lying
on his table in "littlo baskets," waiting to be con?
sumed by a fire, and the poet in wantali tho while,
and writing pitiful appeals to his friends and ad?
mirers for pecuniary assistance I

It ia the fashion, just now, to represent the
country as nourishing beyond all precedent in our
or any other nation's history, and it is claimed
that Europe net only stands rn awo of us, but is
extremely desirous to leam all it can from our su?
perior knowledge, enterprise, &c.
Now, when we reflect that the Abolition party in
power is the tool of European monarchists, crea?
ted by them for the sole purpose 0/ overthrowing
republican institutions; and that they have, to a
a great extent, accomplished their mission, and
ore working Uko beavers to "reform" the Con?
stitution, and i lot out utterly the work of Wash?
ington, it is ridiculous, as u is said, to sec tho
monarchists pattiug them on their heads, and toll?
ing them what smart fellows the "Yankees" are.
Cyrus W. Field, who lava down tho Atlantic Cable,

ingly "enterprising" character; und the Queen, it
is said, really wants to make him a knight as weli
as an ass-ir ho wisbes it. And then Bennett's
yacht and trip across tho Atlantic is thought to bo
exceedingly smart and enterprising; while ail this
timo John Bull is not onlv taking away all our for?
eign commerce, but undor our present tariff and
worthless currency, American shipbuilding-ex?

will be manufactured in thc South, and then, when
the Yankees find that they must buy their cotton
and sugar of John Bull, or shut up shop altogeth?

realize*what egregious asses they have been, and
"Plum Gut" yachts and Atlantic Caolos will bo a

LOUISIANA EMIGRANTS FOE VENEZUELA.-The
New Orleans Crescent of tho 22d says:
There is now present in this city a party of some
fifty or sixty emigrants, who have made, through
che Government at Washington, a contract with
the Republic of Venezuela to euter that coui try as
colonists, in return for a donation of land amount?
ing to about 1200 acres to each actual settlor. This
contract has been so far complied with that tho

They arrived in this city from Missouri, about the
first of tho month, and one or two accident.-;,
which aro more or less incident to all similar en?
terprises, have thus far prevoutod them from leav?

Captain of their schooner, or some disagreement
with him about terms, yesterday brought tho caso

CONSOLATION.-It is very fortunate that the peo?
ple of the South eschew politics at this time, for,
as used by thoso who jump at tho crack of Thad.
Stevens' whip, no honest lim g can bo made at
such a trade.
When the historv of those times shall bo written;
when tho mon of lo-day ahall como up for judg?
ment before posterity; "when the student of Ame?
rican annals shall contador our glory and our

Tho American people have degenerated-thoro
can be no question of tho fact, else how could such

Our New York Letter.
[FROM OTJE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YOEE, January 19.-Tho heaviest fall of
snow wo have had here for the past eleven years
waa vouchsafed to us on last Wednesday night
and Thursday, by his honor tho Clerk of the
Weather, and sinco thon all of New York has been
on ono grand sleighing expedition. Sleighs
everywhere, tho air merrily resounding with the
tintinabula'tion of tho bells. All "Fifth-avcnue
diodom" out in their magnificent wheelless car?
riages, and tho JioipoUoi sliding along in less os?
tentatious vehicles, but all sliding, all running
along gaily through tho snow. It was a sight
that we seo but once-I was about to say in a life?
time, but I mean in eleven years. The entire city
was clad in the thickes. kind of a snow mantle,
except hero and there on the sidewalks, where
men and boys shovelled off the mantle as fast as
it fell. Tho street cars were a sight to behold,
densely crowded with half frozen passengers,
pulled alon? each by four poor beaBts, that
strained and slipped, and fell and got up, then
strained and puned, and slipped and fell again,
till it was a wonder that the poor dumb beasts did
not emulate the example of Balaam's single team,
aud erv' aloud in their distress. Ever and anon,
when the track was obstructed, would tho poor
horses be compelled to pull a heavily laden car off
the track, across tho street to another track, then
back again, and all this through tho slippery snow.
One poor animal in particular seemed to regard
me with an expression of such painful reproach
that I was verily on tho poiut of walking, instead
of adding to the burden that he bore, and was
only deterred by tho conviction that some ono
else, perhaps a hoarier piece of humanity, would
take the vacant stand on tho platform.
No surprise has Von excited here by the bold,
square, and, if I mav bo a lowed, tho expression,
?ho flat-footed stand the Herald has taken in the
past three days in favor of the impeachment ol

Herald is often admitted behind the scenes, and
that when it seems to load public opinion, and in?
fluence the rise or fall of the political thermome?
ter, it merely foreshadows what is to come, and
what will come with or without the foreshadow?
ing; for it is now believed that Congress dare do
all that may becomo a body of unscrupulous poli?
ticians who' look only to sou and party aggrandize?
ment, and that the event for what the Herald is
endeavoring to prepare the pubUc mind, will soon
Men who are so carried away by tho tender pas?
sion as to indulge in pistols without coffeo, with a
rival in the affections cf tho fair one, should take
warning by the fate of thc two gentlemen from
Wost Point, who passed through hore en route for
parts unknown, to fight for a young lady whom
they both loved with equal method and madnoss.
The duel must have como off ere this, and it does
not matter much to the lady what bo the survivor,
as she has united hcruelf in the holv bonds of
matrimony with a third gontleman, who prefers
marrying to shooting pistols, or hoing mr?" a

It has been proposed, in fact determined on, to
advance the pay of tho members of tho Fire De?
partment here. The foromen will receive *welvo
hundred dollars per annum; aspistants eleven hun?
dred, and privates one thousand. In Buch weather
as tliis the game is worth thc candle, I mean the
work is worth the money, for I saw a fireman
a night or two ago whoso coat tail was frozen
hard, and stuck out behind Uko a shingle sherbet.
At the fair of tho Ladies' Hobrew Benevolent So?
ciety, now boing held in Fifth avenue, there is
quite a musical curiosity in tho shape and form of
a lirge orchestrian-an instrument which dis?
courses sweetest music in tho plural number,
which is, nevertheless, quite Bingu.ar, as tho con?

that produced by an orchestra of twenty pieces.

A friend should bear a friend's infirmitios. A
young lady who had alargo quantity of jewelry had
? male friend who looked upon such trinkets as a
weakness, a docided infirmity, and resolved to act
a friendly part, therefore, when Miss Laurcntos
gave him the pieces of jewolry to have thom ap?
praise i, he thought proper to sell thom and pocket
the money, which, suiting the action to tho
thought, ho forthwith did; but the law does not
regard th's proceeding as an act of dis'ntorcsted
friendship, aud so he is in durance tile, and held
for examination for misunderstanding tho spirit of
a passage from Julius Crosar.
Although tho weather is so intensely cold, the
peoplo still walk out at ni-^ht through the snow,
and crowd the theati es and places of amusement,
especially the skating rinks, both public and pri?
vate. Tho Black Crook draws just as largo au?
diences as ever, and people are beginning to bo
lievo that it will be played at Niblos till the day of
judgment and tho blowing of tho last trump. Th's
other theatres, both Herald-advertising and non

A Negro Applies for Admission to a Georgia
Wo copy as follows from tho Savannah Republi?
can of Friday :
Superior Court, Chatham County :-Yonrhumble
petitioner, Aaron A. Bradley (colored), comes and
prays your honorable court to grant him privilege
and immunity to practico law. Because your pe?
titioner is a full member of tho Superior Court
ot tho State of Maine, and "full faith aud credit
shall bo given in each State to judicial proceedings
of every other State." Article 4, Constitution
Also, article G says this is "the supremo law of
tho land, and tht judges in every Stato shall bo
bound thereby ; anything in tho Constitution or
laws of the Stato to thc contrary notwithstanding."
Aud your petitioner further submits to this hon?
orable court tho opinion of tho Supremo Court of
the United States, December term, 18(JG, page 423,
in these words, to wit: "But if he ranks as a citi?
zen ol' tho State to which ho belongs, within tho
moaning of the Constitution of 'the United States,
then whenever ho goes into another State the Con?
stitution clothes him, as to the rights of person,
with all the privileges and immunities which bo?
long to tho citizens of tho State."
"And if persons of the African race aro citizens
of tile Stale and of tho United States, they would
ba entitled to all of these privileges and immuni?
ties in every State, and the State could net restrict
them, for they would hold those privileges and
immunities under tho paramount authority of tho
Federal Government, and its courts would bo
bound to maintain aud enforce them. And if tho
States could limit or rostrict thom, or placo the
party in an inferior grade, this clause of tho Con?
stitution would bo umnoaning, and could have no
operation. This is evidently not the construction
or meaning of tho clause in question. It guaran?
tees rights to tho citizens, and the State cannot
withhold them." Pago 423.
Your humble petitioner, therefore, comos and
prayB this honorable court to grant him the privi?
lege and immunity of practicing law in the Co -.n
tv of Chatham, and State ot Georgia.
AARON ALPIERA BRADLY, Atty.
The laws of Georgia do not authorize or contem?
plate the admission of persons of color to tho Bar.
and as this is a matter entirely of internal police
aiid municipal regulations, over which this Stato
bas absolute and exclusiva jurisdiction, it is my
deliberate judgment that this court has no power
to grant the w.thin petition, thepetitioncr being a
porson of color. W. B. FLEMING,

drivers, 1300 own tboir own teams, whilst thc
others drivo teams belonging to capitalists, who.
of course, get the lion's share of the profits. These
cabmen have a precarious sort of life, being con?
stantly out of doors, exposed to the edd and wot,
without social comforts or so't:cd homos and very
often in want. For their benefit what are called
"Cabmen's Clubs" havo been established by be?
nevolent persons in London, at. which they aro
provided with meals, books and va ans of comfort
and instruction. A registry of unemployed cabmen
is also kept, and a fund provided, out of which, in
case ol' sickness or death, a stipend is paid. These
clubs, ene of which has boen in successful opera?
tion for noarlv eight years, and lias a regular
membership of over thrco hundred cabmen, aro
found to do a great deal cf good.

Thc Disturbance on a. Plantation near Sa?
The Savannah New3 and Herald, of yesterday
morning, has the following account of the manner
in which the difficulty on the CHEVES' Plantation,
opposite that city, was brought to an end:
THE ntFilCtrLTT ON THE DELTA PLANTATION SETTLED.
As wa suspocted, the difficulty OQ tho Doha Plan?
tation has been greatly exaggerated, and tho dis?
content and turbulence of a iew misguided freed?
men hos been magnified into a formidablo insur?
rection. Por this the public are indebted to tho
mischievous intormeddlhig of a negro emissary,
scarcely less ignorant of the rights and obligations
of the lately emancipated slaves than themselves,
and to sensation mongers who have given currency
to unfounded rumors and reports. Tho following,
wo believe, is about the upshot of thc whole mat?
ter, as ascertained by our reporter:
General B. K. Scott, commanding the District
of South Carolina, arrived hero about two o'clock
yesterday morning, on the steamer Pilot Boy,
from Charleston. About nine o'clock the General,
with Captain Brandt, proceeded to the scene of
disorder, taking with them the negro Bradley, tho
reputed adviser and counsellor of the freedmen on
Mr. Cheves' plantation. .
Our reponer understands from General Scott
that tho whole trouble has been moro imaginary
than real, and that the only anns tho negroes had
were clubs. When ho arrived on the plantation,
they met him without any show of resietanco, but
said they had beon instructed that iihoy could not
bo removed from the lands foi" two years. Some
of them had boen bern on tho plantation and
thought thoy had a lifo estate in it. Tho General
told them differently, informing them that thc
condition of things had changed; that they wero
now free to work where they pleased and for whom
they pleased, but that they could not occupy the
lands without tho consent of tho owner.
After talking some two hqnr3 to tho negroes,
answering their questions and" giving them some
good advico, some of them expressed their willing?
ness to contract with tho recent lessee of the
placo, and the others agreed to leave at the expi?
ration of a week.
The Genoral has ordered Capt. Brandt to select
three disinterested parties, who, in accordance
with the law us it now stands, aro to appraise thc
improvements made by tho freedmen on tho place,
for which they aro to bo paid, and at the end of
tho week those wishing to remain will make con?
tracts, and tho others will leave the plantation.
IT is said that a clergyman in Suffolkabire, Eng?
land, recently read a'leading article from the Lon?
don Times to his congregation, instoad of a ser?
mon; and a better sermon aomo of these articles
would mako than some clergymen ordinarily de?
liver. If there aro sermons m stones, why not in
a Times leader ?
Wo have heard a time for sermons, and sonnons
for tho times, but never before the Times for scr?
ibe corpso of an Indiana lady was recently
taken up near Boonevillo, for tho purpose of re?
moving it to tho cemetery near tho town. It was
found to be hi tho state of pctrifaciion, weighing
Borne seven hundred or eight hundred pounds, and
taldng Burne eight or ten mon to lift it from the
vault. Tho matures wore, perfectly natural but
hard as a rock.
Gov. H. W. Allen's romtins are to bo interred in
the yard of tho State Houso, at Baton Bouge. The
Comet says :
"Tho spot soloctod for thc monument is ono ad?
mirably suited to the purpose, being upon the im?
mediate b"ow of tho hill, neal" the principal en?

overgroons ana commanding a viow of tho river.

I have been for a year or more past in the habit of '
taking the water of the "Excelsior" Spring of Saratoga, g
Accustomed during tho great portion of my invalid lifo
to uso tho different waters of the several fountains wbicii .
boil up along that remarkable valley, dependent, indeed,
upon them tor much of the comtbit I .?fluoy, I am satis-. .
fied that tho Excelsior Water ia as well w^sied ss any :
other among them, if not more eo, to the purposes for '??
which they are generally employed: Ii. is very agreeabi*. ?
strongly impregnated with the carbonic acid, ?v?ly ana -
sparkling. * * * I can heartily and conscientiously ;
reconuu'jnd it to all who need a gemlo cathartic and i
diuretic. SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON, M. D. ' j
